The 480p quality throttle algorithm on the “Unlimited” plan doesn’t seem to work with Hulu. So should I just stop paying for Hulu?
I’ve wondered about “live” tv. I have the 480 and have tried most of the streaming services through several devices. Directtvnow buffers like mad, Sling buffers, and Hulu ran ok but looked bad. All three weren’t watchable as my primary tv service. Amazon, Netflix, Vudu, moviesanywhere, Ultraviolet, all play well on both Apple TV and Roku (excluding prime time buffering). I don’t know if I’ve adjusted to the viewing quality or they look better than other services somehow. I’ve tinkered with settings, but the services that auto adjust play the best. Those I’ve had to manually adjust look like crap when streaming.
